Exclamation Fishy Emergency?!?

Help?!?

I have had my little betta for almost 2 years now...for the past 3 weeks or so he's been at the bottom of his tank on a regular basis and he won't eat, and he isn't acting like himself. I just cleaned his tank, changed his water, blah blah blah...but he's still not swimming around, and he almost looks like he is "gasping for air!"

Is this normal? What should I do? Is there anything that can be done?
